Why? They just drafted Tristan Thompson at 4 who's a very similar player and Casspi is an excellent player that couldn't get consistent PT this year because Westphal has retarded rotations.

Cavs shouldn't do that.

yeah, I actually think Casspi is a better player than hickson, who still hasnt really seemed to put it all together.

Amazing. One of the reasons the Cavs didn't want to trade for Amare was because they didn't want to give up Hickson.

If they had trade for Amare, LBJ and Amare would both be in Cleveland right now.

Draft night that were rumors of Douglas for Casspi. Hickson would be an absolutely great pick up for Sacramento. They have to be giving up more though... maybe Jason Thompson? Hasaan Whiteside?

No, Lebron was leaving anyways. Stop being revisionist; the holdup was on Phoenix's end, for good reason. They were getting screwed even with Hickson in the deal/

Anyway, surprised nobody posted that Kings' 1st round pick is also in the deal.

JJ is a borderline star, on the cusp of it. he's WAY better than Casspi, who barely even cracked the Kings rotation. i'm not saying Casspi is terrible, since he's tall, athletic, and can knock down 3's, but JJ is a WAY better and more proven player. its not even close.

JJ came into his own last year. before last year i'd say he was overrated and maybe a bust, but last year when he was getting shots and run, he was beasting more games than not. i mean putting up damn near 20/10 type numbers...

And losing Amare for nothing was better? They would have still had that cap space, since they would have gotten Big Z's expirer and also had Hickson.

A borderline star?:lol Please. Hickson will never be a star nor make an all star game.

The word is that they turned us down but I know if we gave Hickson up, we wanted more than just having Amar'e for a couple months. He wanted a big name city.
